One way of discovering the exact location of the world’s most notorious flier and his army of reindeers is with any number of Santa Tracker apps.
Google’s Santa Tracker website and Android app will go live on December 24, when the beardy gift-giver will begin journeying around the planet and slide down the chimneys of people who are lucky enough to live in houses rather than pokey little flats.

The North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) runs its own Tracker website and has been following Father Christmas for more than 60 years. Many local TV stations use the NORAD website to track Santa.
